1.1 Pamphobeteus sp. “Machalla”
Purple Bloom (SA)
This is a stunning Pamphobeteus species females are brown with the classic bronze Christmas tree markings on the carapace. and males are bright purple. As spiderlings they are the turquoise and have an orange abdomen with black diamonds running up it. Pamphobeteus are our favourite genus of Tarantulas, this is not due to range of colours they come in but because of their behaviour. They are interesting to keep as they are not shy and are very greedy feeders. When threatened raise up on their tip-toes and lift there abdomen like an angry cat who hasn’t got time for your Bull shit.
